Honeymooner's Review Guide recommends using a wedding coordinator or honeymoon destination specialist for couples planning a destination wedding or honeymoon. Survey results show that honeymoon disasters occur due to poor honeymoon planning. Planning the perfect wedding and honeymoon requires lots of research and assistance from destination wedding and honeymoon travel specialists.

"Those couples planning destination weddings and honeymoons should be sure they get professional assistance," according to Michelle McKenzie of Honeymooner's Review Guide. The complexities involved in a destination wedding are far greater than a traditional wedding. Even if it is just the bride and groom, caution and careful planning is her advice. Adding a wedding party and guests brings many more potential pitfalls and challenges. The website strongly suggests investing in either an independent wedding coordinator from the destination or seeking out a resort that has one in-house. Even then, careful research including checking references and talking with recent couples is advised. Tips on planning a successful destination wedding using a wedding coordinator are available on the website.

As to the honeymoon, that special romantic time alone, honeymoon Couples who fail to research hotels properly or fail to use honeymoon travel specialists may end up with honeymoon disasters. Bad experiences can lead to a failed holiday for honeymoon couples even staying at top rated resorts.

Honeymooner's Review Guide hears from thousands of couples returning from their destination weddings and honeymoons. LaVerne Haller states, "Honeymoon experiences range from 'Passionately Romantic' to 'Our Worst Nightmare'. When asked why, she adds, "brides- and grooms-to-be are very busy these days, focused on the wedding day, and rely too much on quick internet arrangements rather than seeking out a competent honeymoon travel specialist." The online destination wedding and honeymoon planning website provides all the tools to put together a romantic, memorable destination wedding and honeymoon, and they do not make travel reservations providing objectivity.

Haller also states in her opinion, based on direct feedback from returning honeymooners, that "although internet sites like Expedia, Priceline, Orbitz, Travelocity, Hotwire, etc. might be options for some travel occasions, a honeymoon is not one of them". Choosing the right destination and accommodations is paramount to having an enjoyable wedding and honeymoon experience remembered for a lifetime. She says that she highly recommends the use of a travel specialist for a destination wedding and honeymoon, but she stresses that it is also best for couples to invest time doing research themselves. This will give them a better idea of what is available.

Where can honeymoon bound couples start? Their Guide to a Perfect Honeymoon starts with a "Honeymoon Quiz". This assessment, along with their "Budget Cruncher" and other tools and ideas can be found on the website under honeymoon planning . Haller says that the main determinants are identifying a romantic location; a hotel, resort, cruise or other property at an affordable price that caters to romantic couples rather than families and children; good quality and selection of food; and enjoyable activities. Additionally, for honeymooners, a great guestroom and location is important and can be facilitated by reviewing their "How to book a Romantic Honeymoon Room".
